Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)
The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) helps families who are homeless by giving them shelter and three meals a day through the hospitality of different churches and synagogues.
St. Cassian Church will be hosting the families during the week of February 18 through February 25. The parish community has worked together for many years to make this outreach a success. If you are interested in volunteering during (or to help prepare for) our host week, please sign up using the links below.
